Thank you all for you kind words about Russell. It really is the hardest part of owning pets - they never live long enough. But he had 14 good spoiled years and I'm thankful for that.. So now we give our living fur babies a big snuggle and turn our attention back to life at hand ... and head back out to the garden.
One of my other weekend plans, beside jamming and working on Lestrange, was to get my poor tomatoes staked up. They were starting to look rather wild and if I didn't do something soon, they'd probably start to die
mini one is still mini - though quite healthy - no cage needed) and Dad's two cages were the perfect size for the larger plants. They look much happier now - if a bit wilty. But the sun was hot, so I gave them a nice long drink and they perked right back up. I've even got little green tomatoes on them already.
The strawberries are rocking though - nice big leaves, and I'm just starting to get some flowers.
And over in the bee garden
Oh and the mini sunflower bloomed
